It’s almost done. The $10 million office building being developed by Klein Development Inc., on the southeast corner of N. 27th St. and Wisconsin Ave., is on track for completion within a week or two, by August 1 or so. Soon thereafter the State of Wisconsin Department of Children and Families will move all of their Milwaukee area staff and operations into the location.

Jason Korb, of Korb Tredo Architects, is the lead architect on this office building as well as on a number of other new proposals, including Vangard Development group, LLC’s recently approved Ingram Place Apartments at the corner of N. Holton and E. Brown streets.

During a recent meeting of the Zoning, Neighborhoods & Development committee meeting, Ald. Bob Bauman connected the two projects. He asked Kalan Haywood, Vangard Development Group, LLC, if he would consider a design tweak to incorporate a bus stop into his proposed Ingram Place Apartments.  The request was made because the design lent itself to incorporating a bus stop and the intersection is a key transit access stop. Bauman broached the subject saying, “since Mr. Korb has become expert at designing bus stops,” and added that the one built as part of the 27th St. project is a, “very nice looking bus stop.” Hayward responded, “we’d definitely take it into consideration.”

Our photos show the 27th St. project is nearly complete, with the front desk build out and the bus stop mentioned by Bauman.
